Overview

Highlights

  • Visit ancient palaces, forts and monasteries of the Indus Valley.
  • See rural life in the old Silk Road kingdom of Ladakh.
  • Visit the remote Nubra Valley over the world’s highest driveable pass.

Short Description

For more than a decade the holiday Mecca of Kashmir was considered out of bounds. Not any more! Since 2005, we have been running trips here with great success. Of all our trips to Kashmir, this is one of our favourites, including as it does a visit to neighbouring Ladakh with its strong Tibetan Buddhist influences.

Stride Take

Travel trans-Himalaya through the north Indian states of Ladakh and Kashmir for spectacular scenery and cultural exploration.

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.

Love Wild Frontiers because of choice of trips and guides. Remember particularly Dhala Campbell in Palestine as typifying the brand, slightly whacky (sorry, Dhala) but tremendously efficient and fun. Really interesting people are attracted to the unusual trips which adds to the enjoyment.
